The state of Ohio is often associated with the industrial landscapes along its Great Lakes coast. However, Ohio is one of the most underrated states to take a rental RV vacation. Its major cities are fairly close to each other, it has some wonderful forests and rivers to explore in its central region, and prices at restaurants and attractions are typically affordable.River Run Campground is located near to where the Black Fork and Clear Fork rivers come together to form the Mohican River. It’s one of the more developed RV campgrounds in the area with full hookups for your RV rental, along with a wealth of great amenities. Each of the campsites at River Run Campground has a picnic table, fire ring, and access to flush toilets; if you need to empty the tanks on your RV, there’s also a centrally-located dump station.For recreation, there’s a game room, basketball and volleyball courts, a playground, and a swimming pool. If you’re thinking of paddling the Mohican River, the campground also offers canoe/kayak rentals and pickup. There’s also a camp store and snack bar where you can grab basic provisions or something to tide you over until dinner.River Run Campground is located between Ohio’s capital in Columbus, and the largest city, Cleveland. Both are roughly 90 minutes' drive from the campground on Interstate 71, which is about 20 minutes' drive from River Run. The town of Loudonville is just a short drive away and has an excellent selection of restaurants, shops, and attractions to enjoy; you’ll never be short on activities when you’re camping at River Run Campground.

River Run Campground is just outside the Mohican State Park, which can provide endless recreational opportunities when you’re renting an RV near there. The centerpiece of the park is the Clark Fork Gorge, a 300-foot-deep and 1,000-foot-wide canyon. It’s quite a sight to see, but there are also numerous hiking and biking trails to explore outside the gorge.If you want to get out on the water while motorhome camping at River Run, there are lots of options. The Clark Fork, Mohican, and Black Fork are excellent, but if you prefer a no-current paddle, Pleasant Hill Lake is the place to go. Rentals are available at the marina, and the three-mile-wide lake has dozens of interesting coves to explore and wildlife to see.Cuyahoga Valley National Park is a must-see when camping in an RV in Ohio; not only is it the state’s only national park (and one of the few in the Midwest), but it also has some of the best cycling trails in the country. The Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail runs right through the park. It provides 20 miles of relatively easy and highly scenic cycling. If that’s not enough, there are another 60 miles of towpath to explore outside the park. There are also plenty of excellent hiking trails inside Cuyahoga Valley, with the Brandywine Falls trail being one of the most popular. Unlike most of America’s national parks, Cuyahoga Valley has a lot of development inside the park, so it’s one of the better ones to visit if you’re not a fan of “roughing it.”
Loudonville is the nearest town to River Run Campground, and it has enough attractions and amenities to keep you entertained for several days. The Cleo Redd Fischer Museum is a good place to start your tour of Loudonville, as the community-run museum chronicles the history of the Mohican region and Loudonville. There’s a small frontier-style cabin open for tours, along with several interactive exhibits detailing events and prominent industries in Loudonville’s past.For some culture, head over to the Ohio Theater, just off Main Street. The historic theater was originally built as a town hall, fire department, and opera house. It has gone through extensive renovations and now hosts film screening and community theater productions. Check the theater's schedule to see what’s happening during your visit.You could also head out into the country to check out some of the region’s wineries. Most offer tours of the vineyard along with tastings for a fee. These small-batch vineyards grow varieties of grapes unfamiliar to the average wine drinker's palette, so be prepared for some interesting flavors and be sure to buy a few bottles to take home to friends and family. If you’re bringing the kids along for this RV camping adventure, there are also a few family-friendly attractions in the Loudonville area, like go-karts, bumper boats, and obstacle courses.If you’re a fan of niche museums, you’ll definitely want to check out the glass museum in nearby Millersburg. The region has a long history of glassmaking, much of it connected to Dutch immigrants who settled in the area. The museum is just one room but is packed with glittering vases, cups, and decorative pieces.
What type of RV should I choose?
Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.
You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.
Do the RVs have bathrooms?
Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.
